    Hey guys I just wanted to know if you can help me with my decision. I just got BT-07 smokescrreen gt as my first binaltech and it's time to get another. I will get both wheeljack and laserwave (shockwave) but I will get one, wait a month, and get the other. Which one should I get first? Shockwave or wheeljack?:confused:  And some pics of each or if u hav them both together would be nice.

    Which character do you prefer?

    I only have the autobots and rumble and ravage(original decepticon moulds)

    Wheeljack is cool and Shockwave is a ket character...so it comes down to personal preference

    While both are good, the transformation for Wheeljack can be a bit of a bitch. Also, Laserwave's purple paint job is just fantastic.

    The RX-8 is by far a better mold than the Mustang.

    Although they are completely different molds, Laserwave's transformation is very similar to Smokescreen's. I might suggest getting Wheeljack first, just for a little variety.

    Although to be fair, of the two, I think Laserwave looks nicer in robot mode.

    id say Shockwave, esp because then youd have an autobot and a decepticon. BATTLES MAY ENSUE

    Shockwave is a must for alternator collectors, plus the cool gun hand is always win

    Shockwave, I love Wheeljack but yeah like others have said. I hated the frustrating transformation on him and Grimlock.

    Shockwave.

    The paint job on Shockwave is beautiful, and the RX-8 mould has a more intuitive transformation than the Mustang.

    Does it really matter if you are getting both anyway?
    'Shockwave' is one of the coolest Alternators and one of the best molds.
    I don't like the Mustang mold for Wheeljack that much (Grimlock looks much better to me) but he is ok, a real bitch to Transform though.

    Any particular reasons you’re looking at picking up Shockwave or Wheeljack? I think the original characters those molds were intended for, Jazz and Grimlock might be better additions to your collection if you like the molds. Grimlock matches the bulkiness of the Mustang mold better than Wheeljack and IMO the RX-8 mold fits Jazz way better than Shockwave. If you have a personal preference for characters though, Shockwave would probably be a better initial purchase since he’s a Decepticon and different enough from Smokescreen.

    I have soo many jazzes and masterpiece grimlock is the perfect version of him. That's why and there are not many shockwaves that bring him justice except for g1 or the ko g1. I dont have any wheeljacks or shockwaves except for DOTM

    Just to throw this into the mix:

    BT Laserwave is a bit tougher to find than BT Wheeljack.
